NCAA Tournament Gambling: Albany concerned over lack of prep time

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Mountain St. Mary's vs. Albany -2.5 O/U 140

Two non-boarded teams kick off tonight's NCAA Tournament play-in game action with 16 seeds Mount St. Mary's taking on Albany. In terms of rest and prep time, MSM has the advantage having wrapped up the Northeastern Conference Tournament last Tuesday. Albany meanwhile beat Stony Brook in the American East championship game on Saturday.


"My main concern is that we just finished a tough game and have to play on Tuesday and (Mount St. Mary's) have had a week off," Brown said. "I need the prep time. We don't know that much about them so the prep is the biggest thing. These kids deserve to be prepared. I do know that they press and trap for 40 minutes and play up-tempo basketball."

NCAA Tournament Betting: Opposing coach says NC Central is no joke

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NC Central vs. Iowa State -9 O/U 144

According to NC State assistant coach Bobby Lutz, 14th seed NC Central is the real deal and capable of giving Iowa State a game in Friday's first round matchup. Lutz has connections to both teams having served as an assistant under ISU's Fred Hoiberg and now an assistant for NC State. Back in late November, the Wolfpack lost to NC Central in Raleigh, 82-72 (OT).


“Don’t sleep on North Carolina Central,” said Lutz, an original member of Fred Hoiberg’s Cyclones coaching staff. “I’m confident Iowa State will win the game, but it’s not going to be easy.”

“Man-to-man defense, zone, box-and-one, and maybe even a little triangle-and-2,” Lutz continued. “I’m telling you, they’re solid.”

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here is an interesting take on the NCAA Tournament. Sportsmemo Rob Veno put together a comparison of the tournament seeds vs. his power ratings. For example, the selection committee has VCU as a no. 5 seed whereas Rob's power ratings show the Rams to be a no. 8 seed. Note that the West Region has seven teams with a differential of 3 or more making it by far the region with the largest amount of discrepancies.

Need more ammo for that argument you're currently having with your co-worker about Louisville's seemingly bogus no. 4 seed? Here a list of the neutral court pointspreads (based on Sagarin) for the Cardinals vs. higher seeded teams. The only thing that could make this whole episode even more mind-blowing is Manhattan pulling out one of those upset things, no?

(1) Arizona -0.5/-1 vs. Louisville
Louisville -1.5 vs. Florida (1)
Louisville -2.5 vs. Villanova (2)
Louisville -3 vs. Virginia (1)
Louisville -3 vs. Kansas (3)

NCAA Tournament Gambling: Selection committee causes uproar in betting community

03.17.2014     11:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
No shock to see various oddsmakers question what the hell the NCAA selection committee was thinking when put together this year's shindig.


“That’s probably the hardest bracket I’ve ever seen in my whole life,” said Ed Salmons, assistant sports book director at the LVH Superbook who oversees college basketball. “It was a comedy show to watch all the teams they stacked that Wichita State would have to beat to get to the Final Four. It was over-the-top insane.”

“I just let people bet them all year, and they just kept doing it,” Salmons said of the Shockers. “It adds up. I finally lowered them to 10-to-1 but when I saw this region come out, I had to up them. Their true odds of winning this thing would have to be close to 100-to-1.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: An early look at the Field of 68

03.17.2014     08:16 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’ve got brackets to break down! I’ll offer a quick take on the 28 matchups already set for Thursday and Friday. Games are listed in rotation order.

The A-10 got a handful of mediocre teams like Dayton into the NCAA Tournament mix, but the Flyers will certainly be looking forward to a matchup against an Ohio State team that has repeatedly avoided them in non-conference play. The Buckeyes enter the tourney on an 0-6 ATS run; just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 tries as chalk.

Syracuse, too, was a pointspread disaster area down the stretch, cashing only one winning bet in their last eight ballgames. But Western Michigan’s only win against an NCAA Tournament team came on the opening night of the season, back on November 8th, when they beat New Mexico State.

Phil Martelli’s Saint Joseph’s team hasn’t won an NCAA Tournament game since 2004, when Jameer Nelson and Delonte West were his starting guards. UConn is a Top 10 team for free throw shooting percentage; always key in this ‘short favorite’ pointspread Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Initial thoughts on the Midwest Region

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NCAA Tournament field is set and like most bettors, Sunday night is spent skimming through the first round matchups and forming initial thoughts and opinions. Keep in mind that a lot can change leading up to the start of the tournament – most notably where oddsmakers set the lines and where the betting markets drives said lines. For Monday's blog, I'll share my initial thoughts and opinions with our readers on all four regions.

Midwest
The Midwest features three of the four play-in winners with Cal Poly/Texas Southern taking on no. 1 seed Wichita State, Xavier-NC State vs. Saint Louis, and Iowa-Tennessee vs. UMass... I think it helps Kansas State that it got bounced in the first round of the Big XII Tournament whereas Kentucky played three games in three days and expended a ton of energy in the 61-60 SEC title game loss vs. Florida... No clue on who will emerge out of the three-team pod of SLU/NC State/Xavier. The Billikens seem a bit overrated and have trouble scoring at times, NC State is ultra-young, and Xavier is as flighty as they come... Of course the selection committee was going to pit a former Louisville assistant up against the Read more

West
As much as I love the Big Sky I can't even recall the last time they were competitive in the Big Dance. Weber State hasn't faced a defense even remotely close to that of Arizona. The closest was UCLA who trucked Weber, 83-60, in Los Angeles... I just got done looking at Gonzaga's resume and man, they didn't beat anyone. They lost to tournament teams Dayton, Kansas State, and Memphis and went 2-1 vs. a so-so BYU squad. That said, Mark Few vs. Travis Ford is a mismatch. I seem to remember Dana Altman and Oregon running OSU off the court in last year's tourney... Tough matchup for Oklahoma's young squad having to take on very experienced and talented North Dakota State. The Sooners losing in the first round of the Read more
